In 2019, the Center for Innovation, Research, and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA) established a partnership with the Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology (IMET) to sponsor an annual artist residency fellowship that provides opportunity for one UMBC Arts faculty to immerse themselves in the research being done at IMET and to create new work in collaboration with one or more IMET scientists. The scientists at IMET conduct marine and environmental research and thereby create technologies designed to foster the protection and restoration of coastal marine systems and their watersheds, sustainable use of their resources and improvement of human health.
